An official press release from the NZ Warriors has stated there is no major problems in the Warriors camp.
Vodafone Warriors captain Monty Betham and halfback Stacey Jones moved today to reinforce their full support for club management.
�There are no problems between Daniel Anderson and I and there never have been,� said Jones.
�At the moment, I just can�t seem to find form. Unfortunately I am not as fast as in previous years so I need to work on changing aspects of my game. �I will be working closely with Daniel and Tony Kemp to help find solutions so that we can recapture our winning formula as a club.�
Club captain Monty Betham today reinforced his desire to win a premiership with the Warriors.
�The players are right behind the management and coaching staff,� said Betham. �Players who don�t care about winning a premiership have no place at the Warriors. �To be a Warrior you have to care about each other and care about the result of the game.
�You can�t stand in the trenches with someone who does not share those aspirations.� Vodafone Warriors chief executive officer Mick Watson said today the Warriors values were built on commitment and care and, nothing has changed. �Our club values are commitment and care for one another, the end result, the club, team mates and fans,� said Watson.
�Unfortunately Ali has demonstrated he is not interested in these values.� Lauitiiti has made contact with head coach Daniel Anderson to discuss his situation. Lauitiiti will meet with Warriors� senior management tomorrow.
